I'm Adrian, a self-taught landscape photographer based out of Adelaide, South Australia.
My partnership with the camera started only about 4 years ago, before this I had no knowledge at all about photography and I never would have imagined that I would be where I am today, and this is only the beginning!
Most of my inspiration comes from the amazing landscapes available to me in Australia.
I grew up moving all around this country, following my father as he was moved by the ADF. I have been fortunate enough to see so much and I now want to revisit it all and share some of the sights with you all the only way I can.
Why 'Aquilapse'? Well, I always wanted to move away from just "Adrian X Photography" and have a name that is more unique to me and bears some sort of meaning. Aquila, is a constellation, Latin for Eagle (Nothing says freedom & adventure more than birds, right?) It also sits within the Milky Way, the source of my passion so far. Not much needs to be said about what looking at the stars on a clear night can do to you.
This and my new love for making time-lapse videos pointed to a pretty obvious choice for me, now I just hope it sticks!
Comments, favourites and any kind of interaction on my work gives me a huge boost to keep going, so feel free to let me know what you think!
Prints are available upon request too. I don't upload everything at full size, so if you see something you would really like just send me a note!
